I'm getting the same sorts of error messages with grub. Here's the
grub.conf file...originally generated by a Redhat 9 install.

2.4.20 works with root=0303. But I've tried all the variants after root=
(03:03, 0303, hda3, /dev/hda3) and nothing works

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
# boot=/dev/hda
# 2.6.0-test kernels apparently have bug
# in processing root=device names
# changed to major:minor where minor is letter*64 + partition number
# hdb1 = 03:65, hda3=03:03
# But, that didn't work for 2.4.20...trying 0303 now
#

timeout=10
